Writing with kids is more challenging than writing on an upside down rollercoaster.
I am the proud Nana to a beautiful baby boy whom I get to play with pretty often. AND I LOVE IT!
But when my kids were young, I’d be lucky if I got one day of writing done. I’d journal at night, in secret, in the dark, in my room.
Stephen King and Dan Brown say they write every day. Brown writes from 4am to 11am every morning. And they have kids!
But, see, they also have wives! The wives get the kids up, feed them, take them to school or make the dentist or doctor appointments, stay home when the kids or sick or stay up all night with the sick kid. Or at least, this is what I imagine. I don’t actually know because I’ve never read in an interview in which they talk about their wives. Hmmm.
Some women writers have accomplished finished products and publications while being a parent. YAY! Let’s hear it for them. That is quite a task. I’m not sure how they did it, but I do give them kudos. I wonder if they hired a wife to help – you think??
